That Mrs. Mammel is always up to something! She has been talking with the branch manager at Independent Bank. Independent Bank will be giving away $80,000 to 16 local non-profits in 2017. You may vote once per day and rally support for your favorite non-profit like Good Samaritan Rescue Mission or St. Paul Food Pantry from March 15-29. The top four nonprofits will each win $5,000. Let’s make sure that St. Paul and Good Samaritan get the votes they need to bring home this award from Independent Bank.
Little Knight Preschool Registration will take place after school on March 21st. This will be held from 3:30 - 7:30 PM. Please note: After school latchkey will be closed that day. Please make other arrangements for your children that day. Again, after school latchkey will be closed on Tuesday, March 21st . This is due to preschool registration that night.
Mrs. Yoder would like me to use a few lines of the newsletter to let you know that 6th and 7th classes are selling Butter Braids to raise funds for their outdoor education camp. The classes will be attending Camp Wolverine. Order and money need to be given to a 6th or 7th grade student by Wednesday, March 22nd.
Mrs. Kaiser would like me to give you an early heads up about Read Around Night in March. Since March is National Reading Awareness Month, she has coordinated a family-fun activity geared towards the younger grades (but the older students are most certainly still invited to come). On Thursday, March 23rd , Unionville Campus will have storybook characters come to life as the children will listen to the characters narrate their own story. The festivities begin at 6 PM at Unionville. More details will be announced later. Please begin to tell your family & friends about this fun way to promote reading to our “Littlest Bookworms.” Any questions or possibly wanting to help, please call Mrs. Kaiser at 674-8691.
In order to stay on schedule with USA schools, March 24th is a half day. Please make note of that slight change. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience caused by that error.
A few parents have asked me to inform other parents about how we could improve CTK. One way that was mentioned was going to your home congregation voters’ meetings. The budget will be a major talking point in the next two meetings. In order to vote on the budget, a member must attend one meeting to sign the church’s constitution. At the next meeting, the member will then be allowed to vote on any church matter. Immanuel Lutheran Church has scheduled the following dates for its voters’ meetings: April 17th and May 15th. Both of these meetings start at 7: 30 PM. St. Paul Lutheran Church has not scheduled the date for its voters’ meetings. This is an easy way for you to make a difference for Christ the King Lutheran School - to let your voice be heard. You are able to let your church and school know in which direction you would like them to go.
Mrs. Roggenbuck would like to ask for a few parent volunteers. CTK is in need of 10 parent volunteers on Wednesday, May 3rd. This has been chosen to be the date that CTK holds its second annual Public Safety Day recognition. The day would run from 7:30 AM through 1 PM.
